funny idle, startup weird, and transfer case, under

So I got a 96..its been good up till about a month ago. It sometimes takes a couple seconds to crank over..sometimes right on a dime. When it idles its a little shy of 1, and when its in park it idles like 1500..which seams smooth.

but when im at a stop light it jumps a little and shakes. Im sure theres other posts like this but I have another issue. My trucks under a warranty I bought, now fuel injectors and fuel line **** isnt cover. But also the 4wd is ****ed up, it makes a weird winding noise when it locks back into 2wd. Transfer case I hear, which is covered under the warranty.

now the warranty has like a $75 deductable. I dont know where to take it. The dealership I bought it from wants money just to check it out, what if they dont find anything wrong, or screw me and charge me for other stuff..

The whole idle/startup is probably not covered. But I have to get the transfer case fixed before the snow comes. What can I do, the cheapest route? Where should I take it in? Anyone have any suggestions/ideas..Im not the smartest when it comes to auto repair and what not..

Thanks a bunch, much appreciated!

call the warranty place and they can probably tell you exactly where to take your truck in your town ...... but beware those chinsy little warranty's you buy for 500$ or so really give you the run around .... at least mine did. I had some stuff go wrong with my truck that was covered under the warranty but the shop had to wait 4 days before the warranty company gave them authorization to replace an oil pan gasket wich shoudl have been a few hours worth of work ended up being 5 days by the time I got my truck back .. sometimes its worth it just to pay the extra few dollars and bring it to a reputable shop instead of the shop THEY want you to take it to.
